“Was not happy with the treatment here...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2015

We stopped in (4 of us) to have a late bite (it was 8:49pm) or a drink. There was a fairly attractive guy behind the bar with dark hair and there were a couple of young blondes at the bar with drinks. When we came in--he looked at us, but didn't acknowledge us (with

“Something I'd expect in NYC or LA”

Phenomenal unique tapas and flatbreads with a great price and great acoustic music on Fridays. Great date night.

“Mom and Pop bar in a perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2015

I went here on business looking for a place to eat. I called because the Google said said it was closed but it appeared open, it was the best phone call i ever made. The friendly bar tender was very conversational and made great recommendation on the craft beer they had on tap. They allowed me to sample all of their craft beers. Their beer selection was second to none. You must stop by if you're in town. I highly recommend

“Excellent experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2015 via mobile

We discovered the boro cafe shortly after the grand opening. The ambiance is cozy and romantic and the service is impeccable. We have returned on several occasions and the food is always delicious and consistent. On Wednesdays they offer half price bottles of wine with an extensive list to choose from. Not to be missed! Definitely my favorite place for a date night. I will return again and again!

“Excellent seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2015 via mobile

We enjoyed some grouper and some scallops. Wonderful! Portions, flavors, presentation, service, ambience - Boro has it all in spades. Friendly smiles and service confirms that whoever is managing here knows what they're doing, and how to do it. People were self-directed, knew their jobs, and performed cheerily. The chef team certainly knows how to produce top quality.
